We are very excited to announce that Mercer Island FC is now the official name of our club. Established in 1964, the club is celebrating fifty years of providing a broad array of high quality soccer programs to the Mercer Island community. While the name of our club has changed, our focus has not. We've had the same mission for 50 years - to develop and promote physical and mental fitness, sportsmanship, skill development, citizenship, and teamwork for the youth of our community through participation in the game of soccer. We hope you like our new look, and we're excited about the next 50 years of great soccer on Mercer Island!

Coach Colin Rigby and his U12 Boys Team have returned from their trip to Dalian, China. The group of 16 players, who won the State Founders Cup this spring, spent 11 days in China and enjoyed a mix of cultural and soccer experiences. Included in the trip were The Great Wall of China, The Forbidden City, and of course soccer in Dalian- the soccer capital of China.
Although the boys did not win any of their matches- which were against higher level premier teams- they had an outstanding experience. The boys played at the Dalian Stadium, handled a press conference with grace, and received pins from the US Consulate Representative who drove 5 hours to see the boys and give them pins with the American and Chinese flags.
